of defense has invested significant time and resources into improving our nation's energy security. energy security is imperative to the success of today's military. which, by the way, uses 93% of the energy that's used by the federal government, which is the largest user of energy in this country. as our current chairman of the joint chiefs of staff, general dempsey, has said, without improving our energy security we are not merely standing still as a nation, we are falling behind. let's be clear. energy security is national security. and our military leadership understands this. other countries, including some of our strongest competitors, also understand this and we ignore this fact at our own peril. i saw some of the innovations that the navy has adopted earlier this year when i chaired a hearing for the energy subcommittee on water and power down in norfolk aboard the uss kersarge. the purpose was to highlight the advancements the navy continues to make in harnessing renewable energy resources. up with of those resources i saw is homegrown -- homegrown biofuels. and the navy recently

the term "active defense." they're taking that continental interior looking at the view and applying it that sea to protect themselves but also i think to secure the communications for the energy flow into asia along the sea lions. as long as it is done in a constructive laway. then that is good. the contrary is not. the question from indian ocean. and it does not take well to the construction of water, which is a religious standpoint it in massive an infrastructure. i think it draws attention not just to what india thinks of it, but water is at the heart not only of the world's most dangerous or son, but also the world's most dangerous civil war zone. while we're discussing many things, we're underestimating the potential of have it within pakistan upon many of these new infrastructures that have been developed in china. it is certainly far more concerned about [indiscernible] then east to be five years ago. they have been attacked in that region. karachi is self, attacks within karachi, the pakistani forces have not been able to contain them. they just forget about them without inv
of the defense spending cuts and we're not going to fold the debt ceiling increase into this deal, and i think the white house was very taken aback by the meagerness of that offer. and so there's a different tone. but if the substance is going to be enough and the time is short, it's really going to be complicated to get this done by the end of the year. >> mosark, if the debt ceiling not wrapped up, the president is not going for it. he does not want to face this twice. >> it's impossible to imagine, that's such a key piece for the white house, just not to have this fight again. it's going to have to be a joint whip operation in the house. i think there will be a period from the time there's a deal amongst the leaders in the bipartisan leadership in the white house, there will be a period from then until it gets passage in the house that will look like where are the votes going to possibly come from. but if stan hoyer and john boehner are willing to do a deal that they can both support, i think they can get to a majority in the house. the key -- the real trick is the two-part thing or maybe t

changed the outcome of the trial? let's ask criminal defense attorney and legal analyst arthur eye daidala. could it have changed anything? >> yes. it could have. you never know what a juror is going to hold on to. however 12 people found they didn't meet their burden of proving their case beyond a reasonable doubt. the likelihood it would not have changed anything. ad it is hard for me to believe that the district attorney's office didn't know this. >> if that's the case why would they hide it? >> they had a very specific theory of their case when george, the dad -- the last time he had caylee. that google search didn't fit in with that time line. they don't have to present all of their evidence to the jury. they have to give it all to the defense attorney. jose bias wasn't surprised when his investigators found it. in the real world of criminal law it is so uncommon for the defense team to find evidence that the prosecution didn't. their resources, the prosecution team, they have hundreds of lawyers, hundreds of investigators, hundreds of experts. this computer had to have ripped apart b
against israel because their defenses against short-range missiles, in this case, with the iron dome system, but also with the patriot system against possible iranian long-range missiles is going to take leverage away from iran. keep pulling the world together against iran. that's the source of the problem. >> what about the gaza cease-fire? when do hostilities begin again? when does fighting begin again? how much time has been purchased? >> if egypt will take a strong role here to stop the tunnels from being used for weaponry getting into gaza, this could lead to a real plus. >> you know, i read something this week, robert keegan wrote, this is not a question of american influence in the region, it's american interests to take on all of these difficult problems. you talk about syria, the oppression there. conn condoleezza rice arguing in an op-ed this morning in "the washington post" that the u.s. has to do something, yes, it's risky, but there has to be more involvement. the breakdown of the middle east state system is a graver risk than the risks of getting involved in syria. iran
a statement shortly after the meeting reiterating her defense. i quote "we stressed that neither i nor anyone else in the administration intended to mislead the american people at any stage in this process and the administration updated congress and the american people as our assessments evolved." joining us now is abc white house correspondent jake tapper, the author of the much lauded new book "the outpost." first, i want to ask you about benghazi gate. honestly die understand what the senators continue to be upset about. susan rice has acknowledged her statements were wrong but were based upon the best intelligence at the moment. is there any reason not to believe that statement on her part? >> well, one of the things that senator graham said today was that he wants more of the investigation -- the information to come out. the fbi agents who had interviewed survivors of the attack. and he wants to know more information before he says he would be willing to elevate somebody who was involved in any part of this controvers
medicare, precious medicaid, precious social security, and precious defense, those people are phony. >>neil: they are afraid. they will take their money off the table. they are afraid. >> business is not a good environment. there is no reason for any businessman to want to grow its business, advance its business, hire more people, create more problems. >> only 3 percent of small business will be hit. but that is 50 percent of the profits that generate the jobs. small businesses are fretting because they have not had adequate representation in this discussion. everyone is in washington but where is the small business representation? where is their voice at table? where is their taxation and representation? where is it? >>neil: that is where we stand in the middle of a pile of green we don't have that we will have less of and if we don't do something by december 31 we will have uncertainty killing the economy. >> i have asked 9 -- 2,000 business owners how many of you have jobs but are not expanding because of the uncertainty? every hand goes up each time. >> people are sitting on the side li

everybody but it is major, massive defense cut, defense cuts which the defense department is warning you can't do. it is payroll tax cut. it is jobless benefits will be cut. reimbursement rates for doctors who take medicare patients with the so-called doc fix. that will jeopardize potential care according to dr. seeing he will if. there are all sorts of things, it is easy to say, let it happen but, you know, it is hard to believe they will find the split call will they haven't been able to find because we start to dangle off the cliff as opposed to just approaching it. am i wrong? >> lawmakers do love to do nothing. they're very good at that. in this case doing nothing has some appeal. the consequences, speaker of the house john boehner and the president both know what happens in the future for them in what they're doing will be made much harder if they can't demonstrate they have the will now to at least get a framework deal together. that is just the way that that is. but the problem that they face is that very liberal democrats and very conservative republicans are going to look at them a

that i have observed that works and is helpful for the department of the defense. talking about a strategy, a broader view, and then through the report get into the details. in the congress, we have all these different committees that claimed some part of the jurisdiction. i had a simple solution. pete, we need some energy legislation and leadership. good luck. every now and then, i would get into his territory and he would teach me a lesson about how far i could get into energy policy because he would come to me and say we have to do this differently. one of the questions i know people will ask -- why are you doing it now? the obama administration will have an opportunity to look at these proposals in november and december and hopefully decide to take advantage of them and use them next year. also i am hopeful and will recommend that this not just be administrative action. congress should implement this, too. beyond that, we will have the proper recommendations with regard to other issues of security, jobs, efficiencies, innovation. this is such an important part of our economy
gathering. [laughter] i know many of you and your friends and neighbors are recovering from the defense of hurricane sandy -- i want to let you know our thoughts are with everyone who has suffered during the storm and its aftermath. it has been a very challenging time for new york city. i think you have shown quite a bit of fortitude in coming back and getting back to business. my remarks today are going to focus on the reasons for the disappointingly slow pace of economic recovery in the united states, and the policy actions that have been taken by the federal open market committee to support the economy. in addition, i will discuss important economic challenges our country faces as we close out 2012 and move into 2013, in particular the challenge of putting federal government finances on a sustainable path and the longer run while avoiding actions that would endanger the economic recovery in the near term. the economy is continuing to recover from the financial crisis and recession, but the pace of the recovery has been slower than fomc participants and others had hoped or anticipated
defense programs clinton sealed the deal, next went to jerusalem and finally cairo. for final talks with egypt's leaders. nbc's jim maceda has more. >> reporter: morsi, the former muslim brotherhood leader has boosted his credibility with u.s. and israel, and has become a politician to deal with in the arab world but it is one thing to broker a cease-fire, now he will have to enforce it and crack down on hamas and their weapons smuggling >> reporter: president obama who visited israel as a candidate four years ago but not since has to decide his next steps. >> the first thing he has to do is decide whether or not he is going to invest in the effort to resolve the israeli-palestinian conflict. i think at the moment it is a stain on his legacy. >> reporter: the u.s. officials are looking at what could be the birth of a new start with the less clear is how the u.s. will handle hamas, which is clearly empowered >>> and now, how all of this is playing out in israel and gaza, nbc's veteran middle east correspondent martin fletcher is in tel aviv tonight. and our chief foreign corresponden
the federal government is preparing for the so-called sequestration, the automatic spending cuts to defense and domestic spending. later, a discussion of reforming the u.s. postal service by the end of this year. the u.s. postal service lost $16 billion in the fiscal 2012. many are calling for this congress to do something to reform how the postal service works. those are our topics coming up next. we will be right back. >[video clip] >> what about the soviet union, khrushchev announced tomorrow that if we attack cuba that it's going to be nuclear war? >> this is such a serious thing that we will be uneasy and things happening. we've got to do something. >> all right. " i would want to keep my own people very alert. >> tell them hang on tight. >> it is amazing that eisenhower tells him to have his people alert, because everyone is completely on edge. and of course kennedy laps. and he says to hang on tight, which is a nice moment that even on this terribly tense day they're able to joke a little bit with each other, especially during this crisis. i think they have a sense of how lonely it i
to self-defense, but i'm not going further than that. >> why can't you say that you don't agree with the turks? >> because i'm not going to get in a public spinning match with allies on either side, not going to do that. >> and what is worse, public spinning match is worse than hundreds of people dying every day. >> i don't understand the question here, there's not a question here, you're just looking for a fight, let's go-- >> no, the fight is already on. >> yes, absolutely. >> what's going on over there. >> absolutely. >> and you guys by refuse to go say anything about what you're trying to do or refusing to say whether you agree or disagree with the comments that are being made by your allies or others-- >> we. >> that makes things worse not better. >> we of course agree that rhetorical attacks against israel are not helpful at this moment. is that what you're looking for, matt? >> that's victoria nuland a spokeswoman for the state department hammered by matt lee who wanted more of a response to this statement from the prime minister of turkey. it read, those who speak of mus
in cuts to domestic and defense spending. since the reagan era, most republicans have pledged not to raise taxes. but as nbc's mike viqueira reports, there are some signs of flexibility on both sides of the aisle. >> reporter: it's a pledge almost all republicans have signed, to oppose tax increases of any kind. that once solid wall was showing cracks. >>> the pledge you saw 18 years ago, 20 years ago was for that congress. the world has changed and the economic situation is different. >> reporter: but republicans insist in return for defying party doctrine, democrats must agree to changes in social security and medicare. >> i will violate the pledge, long story short, for the good of the country, only if democrats will do entitlement reform. >> reporter: activists on the left are lining up to oppose those reforms, but the president has put them on the table before. during last year's failed talks on a grand bargain and more recently in his first postelection press conference. >> we have to continue to take a serious look at how we reform our entitlements because health care costs continue
is essentially acting in self-defense. >> self-defense, which would be true if he were the president of nicaragua. but as president of the united states of america, president reagan even after the huge victory could not convince the united states of america that waging war in nicaragua would actually be self-defense. it would be in our self-interest. so president reagan when he couldn't persuade the country, instead he would wage the war in secret. that secret war in central america led to the huge second term failure of the ronald reagan presidency, which was the iran contra affair. it's amazing that in that scandal he avoided impeachment. 14 administration officials up to and including the defense secretary were indicted. the only reason most of them staid out of prison is because poppy bush pardoned them. it was a disaster. that was ronald reagan's second term after he got reelected with a map that looked like this. when fdr got reelected to his second term, the map was almost the exact opposite. this was 1936. fdr did better than reagan. he got 523 electoral votes. his opponent got 8 electora

defensive coordinator. the guy is top of the field in terms of being a coordinator. what he's not been able to do, he changed the attitude of the team. you know, they are relevant, but in any case, he's not been able to surround himself with good talent on the coaching level. there's matt, the quarterback coach, and these guys are not producing. rex might not have the pulse of the team in terms of anything else other than the defensive side of the ball. he really needs to become this leader to become the ceo. he can't be a defensive guy. david: when a quarterback is running into the rear end of one of his own guys and drops the ball and the other team brings it in for a touchdown, that shows lack of management. >> that's right. that shows lack of execution going to coaching and mental lapses. you can't have that if you're the jets, if you're rex ryan. you have to have guys ready to playing and they have not been. it's an utter embarrassment. david: another sport mixed in there, baseball, george steinbrenner never would have put up with a coach with a lack of discipline or unable to put the

with the charade. indications are by the three senators today that he did. also the defense department, all right, would have to go along with the charade, all right, and that is secretary panetta. so they would be compromised. so you'd have two huge agencies compromised by party politics. now we're getting into the fabric of our democracy here, are we not? >> yes. but we're also getting into more speculative territory. we know the fact that what susan rice said was false. we know her defense is not credible. the one where she says well, there was a classified and there was you can classified. look, when you have a classified thing that you can say, the unclassified is simply stuff that is detailed to back it up which you don't want to reveal. but in this case, they're claiming that the classified was a completely different story, a preplanned -- >> bill: she shouldn't have said anything. >> unclassified is a spontaneous demonstration. so it isn't a back up of the classified story. >> bill: it didn't make any sense to mccain and graham and to ayotte today. it doesn't. if you have classified infor
with honeywell will get big defense contracts. some former lawmakers including msnbc political analyst ed rendell for full disclosure are on the group's steering committee. the real issue is the position taken by these corporate ceos. joining me now is e.j. dionne, washington post columnist and author of the book "our divided political heart." good to have you with us tonight. >> great to be with you. >> this looks like a publicity tour taking aim at earned benefits instead of corporate welfare. it's like these guys have the power to go out and command the camera and the exposure and to make share case that everybody else is the problem but their corporate welfare. how do you see it? >> well, i tell you, ed, one of the things that really bothers me is when these guys start talking about raising the retirement age and what do they have in mind? they have in mind people like ceos, people like us who talk and write for a living, i hope i'm talking to you for a good long time, but they don't think the about what this means for people who might work on their feet all day at a mcdonald's. i'd like to c
. this is about defense cuts, discretionary spending, and it's about tax cuts. only if the democrats agree to bring in the programs for the elderly and poor and middle class would they become part of the discussion. and there's a strong faction among democrats who are saying do not do that. you know, social security is not part of this problem. so it should not be part of the discussion. harry reid, in fact, has been extremely firm on that. he said i will not be part of discussions that include social security as part of this bargain. so if they stick to that, then they won't be. >> yeah, there's so many moving pieces. susan, today, the president's going to meet with small business owners. friday he's going to montgomery, pennsylvania, to visit a small business that will be impacted. very campaign like stuff. what's he trying to do here? >> yeah, who is he not meeting with this week? that would be congressional -- that would be members of congress, especially those house republicans would be the critical partners on this. so he's trying to take a very different approach than he took in the
president. >> brian: joining us is the navy commander from the office of secretary of defense under george bush. he is jd gordon. is it up to the president to get more involved to tell morsi to stop with the absolute monarch thing. >> i think the president should stand up to the muslim brotherhood and say we will not send aid dollars to egypt. morsi put himself [pwao-fr] the courts and law. it is one dick traitorship replaced by another. we need to get tough on egypt. >> steve: when the arab spring first started people were optmistic and it is not turning out the way we hoped it would. >> no, in 2010 the survey poll in egypt found that 17 percent of the egyptians were favorable to the united states and 24 percent favorable to al-qaida and 60 percent to the islamic brotherhood. if you had general elections and threw out mubarack you would get the muslim brotherhood in charge. >> brian: are you encouraged that the people would egypt decided they would not stand with him. >> this is an encouraging sign. i jipt has mod rate secular parties. we should support them. that's the only way to have c
of defense but kerry may have the edge. >> the new strategy is to bore our enemies to death. >> reporter: and george, a possible political drawback for picking senator kerry is it opens up the seat once thought to be reliably democrat. but the senator says that's not necessarily the case. >> the senators i spoke to on "this week" are pretty optimistic about getting a deal. but the staff meeting all last week during that holiday didn't bridge very many gaps. >> reporter: no, all the reporting i have indicates there really hasn't been any tangible progress made. of course, nothing has dissolved, there's been no blowups which is good news. but as of now, they are still miles and miles apart, george. >> jake tapper, thanks very much. >>> george, if you're worried about the fiscal cliff, well, there's always the power ball fever hitting everyone. the jackpot hitting a record $425 million. it could be higher before wednesday's drawing. john muller is right where people are lining up to buy the hot tickets. john, good morning. >> reporter: good morning, amy. this is where the dream begins for m
